Cricket's Story...
Cricket is a 2-year old boy rescued as a kitten from an animal shelter in Southern Virginia. He can be a little tentative at first but warms up easily. He is curious, playful, and sweet!

Cricket absolutely loves his toys and any game he can play with his foster cat brothers and sisters. He generally gets along with other cats but sometimes tries to bully the girls to make them think he is the boss.

He is very curious and always wants to see what is around the corner or what is behind a closed door. He has noticed his reflection in a skylight and desperately tries to figure out how that cat got on the ceiling!
Cricket needs a busy household where he has someone to give him attention and someone to play with him. Through no fault of his own, Cricket has not been shown for adoption for about a year while his foster mom was away due to an illness in the family.

Cricket has tested negative for feline leukemia and FIV. He is neutered and current on vaccines.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Cricket, a Merrifield Domestic Shorthair cat was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Domestic Shorthair for sale in Merrifield, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Merrifield.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Merrifield already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Merrifield breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Domestic Shorthair breeders who help with Domestic Shorthair rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Merrifield paves the way for another one to be saved.
